Changed it up to revisit my application of darker skin tones and this one was pretty tricky. The light hit his face in so many places and it was a challenge to reflect this (no pun intended) as well as add 3 dimensional features to his face. Due to this the layering of colours in his skin tone was different, instead of having major shadows cast on one side of the face I had to capture smaller shadows at strategic points which lead to more layers and a larger colour palette range.
The eyes got me again, way more patience is required when dealing with those features! I kinda have a love-hate relationship with this subject I used, his haircut makes me feel as though his head isn’t proportional. Maybe I should have used my artistic license and given him a readjusted hairdo! Oh well!
